Sound Logic

What would you say if I told you that I was going to put you on a diet and I promised you that after one year you would lose 35 lbs, have the heart rate of an Olympic athlete, and look ten years younger. Furthermore, what if I told you that you get what you pay for so you have to sell your house, cash in your 401K and liquidate all of your investments to pay me to achieve your goals?

Let's say you were desperate, and you gave me the money? So far so good.

Now one year goes buy and you confront me and tell me that you have gained 10 lbs, you can barely walk up a flight of stairs without almost passing out, and you feel 10 years older. You ask me for your money back and I say:

"What are you talking about, I did exactly what I said I would do. You are lucky you hired me when you did because if I hadn't helped you this year you would have gained 45 lbs. , been confined to a wheel chair and felt 20 years older."

If you don't think that logic is sound then how about President Obama implementing 787 billion of your kids future tax dollars into a scheme to payoff all his political friends, buy GM and give it to the unions, illegally taking it from the rightful share holders, and not creating a single job.

After one year, Unemployment is 3-4% higher than a year ago, our deficit has quadrupled, and the economy is in the worst shape it's been in since the Carter administration debacle. When confronted by 'We the people' after one year listen to his explanation and refer to the ridiculous scenario above:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama vigorously defended his $787 billion stimulus on Wednesday, insisting it rescued Americans from the worst of the economic calamity and ripping Republican critics who called it a waste.

In other words, without the governments help, you poor miserable people would be even poorer and miserabler than you are now~

Makes sense..
